Reflective Thinking

There are two principles that immediately come to mind when I think about this verse. The first principle we need to understand is growth. If you want to improve your circumstances you must grow. Sustained improvement in life is impossible without growth. I’ve said this many times before but we are in a constant state of change… if you’re not growing, you’re going backward. The second principle we need to talk about is association. Who you choose to be around and influence you is very important to your growth and your life. If you partner with fools, you’ll make foolish decisions. If your inner circle is filled with negative people they will always empty you without filling you back up.

Action Idea

Make growth and having a wise iron circle of friends a priority of your life. It’s going to make a huge impact on your success.
